30 days. >> well, and ken cuccinelli, maybe he doesn't even want to win, reverend al. because, you know, he knows that the shutdown hurt his chances. he knows it was very, very unpopular in virginia. so what does he do? he brings in rand paul and marco rubio who both voted to continue the shutdown. so on the one hand, he made some noises about maybe it wasn't the best way to solve problems, blah, blah, blah. but he brings in heroes of the shutdown. >> but at the same time, cynthia, that he brought in heroes of the shutdown, he tried to have it both ways when ted cruz came into virginia. and the vice president and the democratic candidate that he's opposes terry mcauliffe, they linked ken cuccinelli to ted cruz. just listen. >> someone who wants to govern in what they hope to be a new tradition of ted cruz. you might remember ted cruz just gave us the shutdown terry just talked about. >> could you imagine if ted cruz, ken cuccinelli, and the tea party actually ran the virginia government? >> now, let's not forget, cynthia, just last month cuccinelli shunned ted cruz at even a photog
at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack the economy and the country and grind to a halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. now -- >> the extremists are hijacking the entire party and one year later they haven't learned anything. joining me now are joan walsh and cynthia tucker. thanks for joining me. >> good to be here, reverend. >> joan, the president talked about hijacking the country. a year later, they did not learn anything. >> it's been a lost year for the republican party. and we're really feeling it as we sit and watch what's going on in virginia. they've nominated somebody who is just a total extremist. they're blocking
's the front-runner right now. president didn't waste any time linking ken cuccinelli to the national tea party. >> you've seen an extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they are willing to hijack the entire party and the country and the economy and grind progress to an absolute halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, i guarantee you it's not in the rear view mirror of voters in virginia they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern and that is not how you move america forward. >> cuccinelli's campaign predicted president obama's visit would energize be republican voters outraged over the obama care rollout exchanges. terry mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 12 points. >> that's a big gap. >> that's massive. >> we'll see. okay. are we going to go to toronto or should we wait until little center i think we'll do it after the break. you all haven't been that well behaved. >> let's smoke. >> no. let's not. that's bad. >> help me out, willie. >> terry wins this race. christi
, this is amazing. terry mcauliffe, the democrat, is outspending the republican ken cuccinelli by 25-1 on the air waves. >> we read so much stuff in the middle of the night, so i never know if i'm dreaming or not. did i see a poll in the middle of the night that said ken cuccinelli is tightening the race in a poll or two or not? >> tightening, sure. we have talked to both campaigns. there was a poll a couple days ago that showed it much tighter. the cuccinelli internal polls do not show it tightening that much. the campaigns believe it's an outlier that terry mcauliffe is cruising to an easy win. you never know. they go to the horse races because they come in and close the gap. >> terry mcauliffe seems like an outsider for the state of virginia. look at ken cuccinelli, who is very, very conservative. some would say too conservative right now for the state. these are the type of races in off years where you wake up and you go holy cow, that just happened? >> there's a third party candidate. newspapers supporting none of the three. it is a wild situation. >> it is a wild situation. do a lot of the
, for instance, the campaign manager of ken cuccinelli, when they were talking about the shutdown, they were having a hard time, and now they're talking about obama care and his campaign is doing better and better. the shutdown was not the right way, in my view, but with obama care, i would have taken the senate and the white house and replace it with something that's going to do a better job for the american people and let them keep the insurance they were promised they could keep in the first place. >> you mentioned ken cuccinelli running for governor in virginia. the new book is called "double down game change 2012." a lot of political intrigue. one aspect, governor, when you had a family owned plan, you actually voted against it. you questioned whether you should stay in the race and whether you could ultimately win. there is an argument that comes through in the book with some republicans that with the stakes so high in the 2012 election, did you not show enough fight? did you not want to win it enough? how do you rebut that charge? >> there is no question but that i wanted to win it. n
mentioned ken cuccinelli running for governor in virginia. the new book is called "double down game change 2012." a lot of political entry. one aspect, governor, when you had a family owned plan, you actually voted against it. you questioned whether you should stay in the race and whether you could ultimately win. there is an argument that comes through in the book with some republicans that with the stakes so high in the 2012 election, did you not show enough fight? did you not want to win it enough? how do you rebut that charge? >> there is no question but that i wanted to win it. no one could have worked harder than myself and my family worked for the campaign. we were all in, 110%. and we wanted to win very desperate desperately. we recognized what was at stake. frankly, i was concerned that if the president were reelected, the economy would continue to dwindle along, we would continue to lose credibility around the world, the american people would find it harder and harder to get jobs, and we're seeing those things happen before our very eyes. i ran because i believed i was the most e
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is
